In this playful adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic romance, Kate Hamill gives the story we know and love an unconventional updating. In Regency England, love is a serious game, and the Bennet sisters are playing for keeps. But when marriage is a must for women, how will they be able to tell if they’ve won? This clever comedy offers a decidedly progressive take on the trials of Lizzy, Mr. Darcy, and the whole Bennet clan, with a few dance breaks thrown in for good measure. “The stuff hits are made of. Cleverly compressed and adapted with fizzy, festive freedom.” (Wall Street Journal)
Following the performance, there will be a live talkback via Skype on the big screen with playwright Kate Hamill.
